On September 5, 2002, Vice President Dick “Cheney had arranged a special session with the Gang of Four, the four top leaders of Congress, [Dennis] Hastert [R-IL], [Dick] Gephardt [D-MO], [Trent] Lott [R-MS], and [Tom] Daschle [D-SD]. …The vice president now wanted to persuade the most senior congressional leaders that the White House had undeniable evidence that Saddam presented a direct and dire threat to the United States.”
